Are you tired of always trying to organize lifts for your children to get them to school or their extra-curricular activities? With your busy work schedule do you struggle to take elderly or disabled relatives to their daytime appointments? Or do you simply need a reliable taxi service to get you to the airport time?

Founded in 2012, Sweetmobil is a family company, which aims to do all that for you! With a fleet of 7 cars, all equipped to take wheelchairs, the company provides regular transfers for children, and people with reduced mobility, as well as their family and friends, within Vaud and neighboring areas.

Asked how he came to set up such a specialized business with his wife, founder Enriquez Bolivar told knowitall.ch, “I worked for almost twenty years in institutions for disabled adults and children and I always saw that there was a real problem with transportation for this category of people and their families. So I decided to set up my own transportation company helping 3 categories of people: children; persons with reduced mobility; and private individuals or groups of up to 15 people.”

As we approach a few days before New Year's Eve, many of you will be out and about, dining with friends, partying in town, or having a drink after work with colleagues.

 

If you’re planning to have a drink, be sure to plan ahead and make arrangements for your return home — if you’re driving, then you need to remain below the legal limit (click here for Swiss limits and here for French limits) and if you’re not, then you need to make sure you have a sensible means of transport back home.

If you can’t rely on friends to give you a lift home, and if public transport is not an option, think about putting some extra money in your purse for a Swiss taxi or French taxi home. At this time of year, fees can be extremely high, so be prepared.

 

When your plans change, and you find yourself in the middle of nowhere, having set out in your car but having drunk more than the legal limit, DO NOT be tempted to get into your car and drive home. Instead, call up Nez Rouge, a volunteer organization set up in 1990, which will arrange for a driver to come out and meet you, and drive your car home!

 

When you call up their free number, 0800 802 208, Nez Rouge will send two volunteers to drive your car home (one driving and one assisting at the back of the car), both of whom will be followed by another driver in a Nez Rouge car who will return all volunteers back to base.
